The Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature, orCAN•CON, is coming up soon. September 9th to September 11th, CAN•CON, or more completely CAN•CON: The Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature, is a periodic science fiction and fantasy convention in Ottawa put on by The Society for Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature.
I’ll be making a few appearances throughout the schedule this year, which is pretty awesome. I had a blast last year, and can’t wait for more.
So, if you happen to be looking for my errant apostrophe self, here’s the details:
- Friday, September 9th, at 9:00 pm – “The Mechanics of Sex” – Angela S. Stone, ‘Nathan Burgoine, Talia Johnson, Dr. Dylan Blacquiere. Yup. Conference panel discussing sex.

CAN•CON happens in downtown Ottawa at the Novotel, one block from Ottawa’s historic Market, the Rideau Centre, the Canal and public transit is pretty solid to get there.
